[audio]IUMA: Antiquity
A New York studio project based around good song writing and caring artists.The idea of this group is to create music the way it should be, by the artists and not the way a record company would envision it.

[texts]AT THE APPROACHES TO MARKET: The Making of the Concepts of Value and Price in the Ancient World (2010) - Armen E. Petrosyan
Today, as in former times, heated debates flare up regarding value and price. Nevertheless the problem is still very fat from resolution. One of the most fundamental causes of such a state of affairs is the lack of notice attracted to the evolution of these concepts. To make up the deficiency the author combines a detailed anatomizing the coming-to-be of value and price with the reconstruction of the logic of their "unfolding" - from the very origins to the age of decline of Rome - in the contex...

In the Rig-Veda, 10.155.3, there is mention of a Daru (log of wood) floating in the ocean. Vedic prayers have indicated for taking shelter in the Daru. In spite of the fact that Acharya Sayana, the noted commentator on the Vedas, has categorically interpreted the hymn with Jagannath as the Daru floating at the sea shores, some scholars have refuted this interpretation under the argument that the hymn deals with âAlaxmi Stavaâ of Arayi.
